Watch out for clowns.

Dead by Daylight development company Behavior Interactive has allowed players of Dead by Daylight to access upcoming content early via their Player Test Build system. The PTB opens up soon-to-be DLC to players so they can test out the new Survivors, Killers, Perks, and Abilities and get a feel for how to play them.

Once you have done that, the next time you launch the game, you will automatically join the Player Test Build of the game. You will now have access to all the upcoming content, perks, Killers, Survivors, and more (assuming it's available to your account). That's all there is to joining the Dead by Daylight PTB.

Is there a DBD PTB code?

No, there is no code to join Dead by Daylight PTB (Play Test Beta). The steps above are all you need to get into PTB and start playing the latest updates before everyone else.

Is DBD PTB available on Epic Games Store?

No, you can only play DBD Play Test Beta on Steam. Additionally, there is no way to transport the game over to Steam, so you are stuck with Epic, the same as me.
